Many of our valued clients in the medical and healthcare industry find solutions with the following services.

Medical Screening

The Commercial Driver’s License Information System is a database search of commercial driver’s licenses in many states.

This background check verifies that an applicant has a commercial driver’s license. This service also works as a tool for criminal searches. It may indicate that an applicant lived or worked in states besides those reported.

Peopletrail reviews credit histories with a credit bureau report from our online access to the three major credit bureau reporting systems.

When considering an applicant for a sensitive position, it is important to have a clear and concise profile. Credit reports can reveal factors relating to financial irresponsibility. In addition, credit reports uncover any possible identity or resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

A credit report for employment purposes does not include FICO scores and does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

Our screening specialists manually search through jurisdictional court records in any of the more than 3,347 counties in the United States. These records provide quick information that is the most up to date. These cases held at the county level include information about felonies, misdemeanors, and criminal traffic offenses.

Drug testing employees and applicants helps keep drug abusers out of the workplace while maintaining the safety of other workers. Peopletrail’s variety of services comply with all federal mandates and regulations. Our customized drug testing programs assist with pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, return-to-duty, or follow-up screenings.

We manually check applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often check the employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or simply to get input from a previous employer.

Peopletrail directly verifies an applicant’s highest level of achievement. This includes dates of attendance, graduation dates, major course study, degrees earned, GPA, and any special achievements. Unless otherwise specified, we only confirm the highest degree achieved.

Records at the federal level potentially uncover criminal information not prosecuted or recorded at the county or state level. This information can include securities and tax law violations, immigration, weapons, interstate drug crimes, and civil rights violations.

Peopletrail provides a wide selection of screening services in over 200 countries across the globe. We work to ensure our global providers follow government policy and cultural protocols.

Federal law requires that employers retain copies of I-9 forms for all employees. Employers must retain this form for 3 years after the date of hire or 1 year after termination. Failure to properly complete and retain the I-9 form may subject employers to civil penalties ranging from $100 to $1,100.

Peopletrail provides I-9 management for clients. This service allows employers to store and verify electronic I-9 forms for employees without the hassle of storing and maintenance.

Another important aspect of medical screening is compliance with Medicaid Sanction requirements.  Medicaid Sanctions are often referred to as Excluded Party List, Medicare, Sanctions, Medicaid/Medicare Fraud Reports, OIG Denied Parties, or List of Excluded Individuals/Entities.

These sanctions are imposed on individuals who have misused funds or who have fraudulently obtained assistance from Medicaid, Medicare, or another federally funded health care program. These sanctions exclude applicants from participating in Medicaid, Medicare, childcare, social services, and all federal health care programs. Peopletrail accesses this important check to see if an applicant has such sanctions.

Peopletrail provides customized ongoing screening services after hire. Post-hire screening helps maintain a safe and productive work environment.

Peopletrail directly verifies any professional licenses. These may include physicians, registered nurses, teachers, pharmacists, real estate sales and financing occupations, CPAs, attorneys, etc.

Peoplestrail goes directly to state or federal licensing boards to directly verify information. This service provides a date of licensing, type of license, license number, expiration date, complaints filed, and any disciplinary action.

Peopletrail provides up-to-date consumer-identifying information instantly obtained from confidential credit report sources. This search verifies the applicant’s social security number and identity. The report also supplies name variations, date of birth, current and previous addresses and former employers.

A social security number search for employment creates a soft inquiry to the applicant’s credit file that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

Medical teams work with different populations and need to make sure they don’t pass around diseases and sickness to their susceptible patients.  Employers must also prove that medical providers are compliant with Medicaid Sanction requirements. Peopletrail provides the necessary verification of immunization and medical records to keep the medical industry compliant and assist in making the right hiring decisions.

Our dedicated screening specialists work with you to determine the best place for your searches. When necessary, a repository search frequently provides a cost-effective way to cover the entire state.

In some states, counties submit criminal data to a state repository. The data that can be collected varies by state. Some states may collect all data from all counties; some states may only collect arrest or felony data; some counties may not provide any data.
